Just in Case...
Would you like to warm the heart of a soldier far from home?
Donate a Pocket Angel
made especially to encourage a soldier!
Boston singer-songwriter Joe Merrick is a civilian, yet perfectly captures the thoughts and feelings of many a soldier nearing the end of a wartime deployment in his heart-rending song, Just in Case. Joe generously donated use of the song at the very beginning of the Borders Bookstores' Pocket Angels campaign.
Joe's style is generally country-rock, with a strong nod to the original rock and roll sound. Besides singing and writing, he is also an instrumentalist and producer, and as the owner of Guilty Dog Studios he has played with and recorded with such internationally-known artists as Kevin Barry (guitarist for Paula Cole and Mary Chapin Carpenter), Keith Harris (Drummer for Black Eyed Peas), Dan Kenny (Keyboardist for Britney Spears) and a variety of Boston-area musicians. He has received songwriting awards from ABET, The Great American Song Contest, Song of the year, and Billboard. He is currently working on his fourth CD and a DVD documentary, and recently signed a deal with Pen Publishing.
